  • Our October Stay in Maine

    "Things we enjoyed: The coziness of the cottage is to be experienced firsthand. Early morning coffee and tea, enjoying the spectacular view off the deck; watching the early morning fog as it lifts and the magnificent sunrise across the bay. The stillness, peacefulness and fall colors can’t be described with words. Sitting on the deck with a good glass of wine and listening to the sound of the water with an occasional fire in a great fire pit on the beach is a must. Visiting the harbor in Blue Hill to buy fresh lobsters off the boat from a very nice fisherman was a highlight for our trip to Maine. Eating them was even better. Places we visited were Acadia, Winter Harbor, Bass Harbor, Bar Harbor, Seal Harbor, Blue Hill, Ellsworth and Schoodic Peninsula. Some of the high lights were the Harbor Porpoises along Schoodic Peninsula, the views from Cadillac Mountain Summit, The Blue Hill Wine Shop for friendly service; accepting of our dog and a great sandwich and cappuccino. Also very knowledgeable about wine. If you like to cook, visit Roaster Brother cooks store in Ellsworth. We had a wonderful time on a sunset sail with Downeast Windjammer Cruise Lines in Bar Harbor. You can bring your own bottle of wine to enjoy while enjoying the views during sunset. Some of the best food we enjoyed we found at J M Gerrish Café, Winter Harbor, friendly, accepting of our dog and the best blueberry pie ever. Seafood Ketch, Bass Harbor, the best lobster roll and a great location with the dog. Flexit Café in Ellsworth was a nice change of pace. The Fish House Grill on the pier in Bar Harbor was very good food, good service and the best Clam Chowder. Black Dinah Chocolates purchased in Blue Hill at the Fair Winds Fresh Flower shop were exceptional. For a quick bite to eat in a very busy area such as Bar Harbor, Downeast Deli and Box Lunch Co., was a good find. On our way to Winter Harbor, we stopped in Hancock at a place called Sullivan Harbor Farms and found the best maple glazed smoked salmon ever. If you like to knit, Shirley’s Yarns, Crafts and gifts in Hancock had a large variety of yarns, some local hand died yarns. There was also The Yarn Shop on the road to Blue Hill with only the basic’s and in the flower shop in Blue Hill (previously mentioned) had limited supply of yarn but all from Maine and hand died. All of this, Thanks to Dee and the opportunity she gave us by opening up her peace of paradise for us to experience. Thanks again, Dee. Mark and Chris Tribby"

  • Beautiful place

    "This place is truly a delight- there was something for everyone. It is very quiet for sleeping, relaxing and reading. The children loved mucking about the tidal waterfront and the kayaks. The full kitchen and outside grill, fireplace and dining area are great for a family cook. There is an outside hose for cleaning up. The seals were amazing to watch- and if you paddle quietly, they will follow you! The house has what you need- full bath, laundry, linens, appliances, fans, delicious muffins! Definitely try cooking lobsters outside on the fireplace- easier and cooler than cooking inside. Located within reasonable distance to Schoodic Peninsula, Winter Harbor, MDI, Ellsport, Tidal Falls, etc. The problem is, the property is so private and quiet, you don't want to leave! Tina, the owner, is charming and responsive. We've spent several vacations in Maine, and this was easily our most enjoyable. The boys loved 'racing' the car from the gate. They always won, funny that!"

  • Cool 1930's cottage right by thr harbor.

    "We certainly enjoyed our stay here. We came for a week in October to hike the Acadia trails and enjoy the Fall foliage. Southwest Harbor has so much charm and is much less crowded than Bar Harbor. The cottage was well equipped with whatever you might need for your vacation. I loved the sleeping porches though it was too cold to use in Oct. I definately would stay here again."

  • Wow!

    "You'll love this sweet cottage because it has all things necessary for a perfect vacation. Clean, well-appointed, comfortable, stunningly beautiful views and landscaping come together to make this place exceptional! Stonington is a trip to Maine that was just what we were looking for. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, hikes for all levels, a picturesque waterfront, easy boat trips/charters, nearby restaurants and golf. Life is so good!"
